Frank and Alex spin up the ol’ hype machine in anticipation of the biggest fighting game tournament of the year, but also get into the usual business of playing games. This week they dive into early PS1 classic Parasite Eve, continue adventures in Final Fantasy XIV, knock some heads in Tekken 7, and maybe still mess around with that Magikarp Jump. They also discuss the end of another MMO, Platinum Games teasing more re-releases, more details on Star Wars Battlefront II, Street Fighter V Evo finals returning to TV, the proper introduction to the latest and very anticipated Overwatch character, the return of a classic Tekken game mode, and much more!
